Students With Diabetes Advocacy Program
Advocacy is all about using your energy to impact a cause. We see lots of advocacy activities in our society. Those that are most effective are the ones that have a match of passion, purpose, and knowledgeable advocates. Our goal at SWD is to empower young adults to engage in diabetes advocacy for a lifetime.
There are many ways to advocate and many causes within the large topic of diabetes, but there are far too few individuals willing to engage. I hope you will join us by registering as an advocate, studying the basic information on the following pages, and reading the advocacy alerts. Information arms us to bring about change. I believe young adults have the skills, the passion, and the drive to lead change in diabetes!
